Imran Tahir, a former South African spinner, believes that India’s overconfidence is the main cause for the visitors’ failure to win both the Test and ODI series against the Proteas. South Africa cruised to victory in the second One-Day International against India on Friday, completing a well-deserved 50-over series victory after winning the Test series against the tourists. Imran Tahir is currently playing in Oman with the World Giants in the Legend Cricket League.
Overconfident that they could easily defeat this team
“I don’t judge any team, but India is a very good side, and this South African team is just growing up, and India misjudged them, and they were overconfident that they could easily defeat this team, and this is the main reason for the Indian side’s defeat,” Imran Tahir said after the match against Asia Lions.
For previous four to five years India dominated world cricket
“India has dominated world cricket in Test and one-day cricket for the previous four to five years, but this Proteas squad performed really well and took advantage of their home conditions to win,” the spinner remarked.
South Africa defeated India in the Test series before ODI.
Retired cricketers will meet up and play
“This is the biggest victory than anything I believe this win is very special as this team is too young . They beat the nation who is dominating both formats for a long time. SA played so well and locked both series,” added Imran.
World Giants lost the match against Asia Lions after setting up a whopping total of 205. Misbah Ul Haq’s team chased up the target in a nail-biting thriller . With the help of the wonderful batting of Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga.
“This type of league is too good “.
“And I wish it will continue like this so we retired cricketers will meet up and play,” said Imran.
